Building better communities for all ages between the generations...

The Centre for Intergenerational Practice aims to support the development and promotion of intergenerational practice as a catalyst for social change



The Centre aims to support managers, practitioners and volunteers in the Voluntary and Community Sector, policy makers, and regional and national government to develop stronger and more resilient communities.

The Beth Johnson Foundation is commissioned by the Welsh Assembly Government to deliver the Intergenerational Strategy for Wales and this work is delivered in partnership with RSVP Cymru as Generations Together Wales. We work in partnership in Northern Ireland to support the development of an innovative programme of intergenerational community engagement. We manage the European Learning Network European Map of Intergenerational Learning (EMIL) and host the International Consortium for Intergenerational Programmes (ICIP).

Currently the Centre has no funding for intergenerational work in England and the work of the Beth Johnson Foundation in this area is based around Age Friendly agendas.

Intergenerational practice aims to bring people together in purposeful, mutually beneficial activities which promote greater understanding and respect between generations and contributes to building more cohesive communities. Intergenerational practice is inclusive, building on the positive resources that the young and old have to offer each other and those around them
